NATO case study: BT network connects 60 sites in 28 countries

A BT network connected 60 sites in 28 countries but Malcolm Green, head of network communications, had to support new initiatives like Connected Forces and Smart Defence. Shifting the emphasis to operational preparedness, such a ready-for-anything model required new levels of speed and flexibility. Malcolm’s unconventional answer was to adopt Ethernet-based technology across the wide area to provide the required bandwidth and any-to-any connectivity. Now, dependent on the requirements of individual sites, BT Ethernet Connect provides backbone speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 10Gbps.
